The New Hampshire Senate failed to overturn Governor John Lynch’s veto of Senate Bill 409 yesterday. The final vote was 13 for overturning the veto vs 10 against. A 2/3 majority is necessary for overturning the veto, so it was 3 votes short.
Senate Bill 409 would have allowed a patient or caretaker to cultivate up to six ounces of usable marijuana if a doctor determines the patient has a qualifying medical condition, defined as a severely debilitating or terminal disease that causes symptoms or treatment results alleviated by marijuana.
So much for enough NH politicians following the state motto of ”Live Free or Die“. I guess it’s “Forced Prohibition & Pharma Pain Meds Only” instead.
